Algeria has always militated for triumph of African causes

Algiers, May 26, 2016 (SPS) - Algeria has always militated in the vanguard of the joint African action for the triumph of the continent's causes, said Wednesday in Algiers Minister of State, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Ramtane Lamamra.

"The praiseworthy joint action of the African Union (AU) for the decolonization of Western Sahara shows Africa's faithfulness to its history," said Lamamra in his address to mark Africa Day.

He underlined that "Africa's effective solidarity with the Palestinian people is in line with those principles."

"This joint action contributes to preserving security in the continent, especially in the Sahel-Saharan region, where Algeria is fully playing its role as a country of peace and stability," he said.

Lamamra added "Algeria gives full meaning to collective self-reliance for a better future for all, especially in the fight against terrorism and its full commitment to the implementation of Peace and Reconciliation Agreement in Mali as well as the Political and National Reconciliation Accord in Libya."

"This collective approach is also crucial for the promotion of the legitimate demands of Africa regarding the reform of the United Nations, particularly the democratization of the Security Council, as expressed in Ezulwini Consensus and Sirte Declaration," said Lamamra.SPS
